Say cheese!

Photos and films can capture unforgettable impressions. But you need to be respectful.

  • Don't consider locals as mere "photo objects". Don't take pictures without asking or even against the wishes of people. Usually you can ask for their assent simply by smiling, making eye contact or nodding.

  • After a friendly conversation, many people voluntarily have their picture taken "to remember".

  • If you promise to send a picture, keep your promise.

  • If somebody charges "right to one's own picture", either give a tip or refrain from taking the picture.

  • Show utmost restraint when it comes to rituals or religious ceremonies.
